I hope the little monkey looked as sexy as you did in those sunglasses.  What a little thief.

I am really enjoying your journal entries.

Thank you Mea! The Monkey unfortunately did not wear the glasses 😅, but chewed on it, so that was not sexy at all... :2funny:

the way to make the monkey stand out is to darken it's shadow against the monkey, then fade it away O0

Thank you so much Mea, Mary- Lou!
Dennis, Pete scully’s art is inspiring! Thnak you for suggesting. I am going to join the urban sketching group in Berlin. I shall be in touch with what’s happening locally.
Nolan, so much of 3-D by darkening the shadows.

I would never tire of seeing your little monkey. I am so missing my cheeky little monkey friends. Seems odd not to here the howlers in the mornings anymore. If I meet any new ones on my treks up the mountains I'll be sure to try and snap a few. I already have many I've sorted and hope to paint a few.
I'll have to give the sketches another go, so many amazing old buildings, plazas and town squares to draw...  :D
Cheers, Val
